97 Point Tasting Notes: “Opening fragrances of pear, honeycrisp apple, white flowers and shiso leaf. Abundant fruit on the palate including green plum, pear, and candied grapefruit. Exciting and vibrant with an elegant texture and a satisfying roundness to balance the tangy citrus. Long finish of mineral, dried herbs and tangerine skin. Will offer refreshment now through 2025.” - California Wine Advisors
Domaine de Bellene was founded in 2005 by Nicolas Potel, whose goal was to follow in the footsteps of his beloved father, Gérard Potel, the influential Burgundian legend that inspired icons like Roumier, Lafon and Jean-Marc Boillot. He was born into the family that owned Domaine Pousse d’Or in Volnay and was already benefiting from his strong local connections before his Domaine was established. The focus is on the outstanding (and often underrated) premier cru climats of Beaune, and on distinctive terroirs in promising appellations that offer exceptional value from a region that has seen a stratospheric rise in prices over the last 20 years.
Roche de Bellene’s new Meursault VV is the perfect wine to introduce you to the Domaine, but we also have a small quantity of Premier and Grand Cru bottles available as well. RSVP today to secure yours.
